Simon finding plenty of grip on the Greenhow grass (unusually)


For the second time in the first 3 months of the year we had to relocate a trial at the last minute for reasons beyond our control. On this occasion, Sunday 26th March, it couldn’t have worked out better; the alternative venue at Addingham Moorside had dried out from the previous weekend and was bathed in unseasonal sunshine. We could also run a kids trial there too so we had probably more than twice the number of riders expected up at Ramsgill. Thanks to all those mums who gave up their Mother’s Day Breakfasts in Bed to see their offspring enjoy themselves in the Yorkshire sunshine. Click on ‘Addingham Results’ (on the right or below if you are on a phone) to see the scores.

The Club Points Positions spreadsheet has been updated to include Greenhow, click on ‘Posts’ on the menu bar above.

You can renew (or get your first) Club membership at our next trial but make sure you have your ACU registration card with you when you sign on because it will be checked. Good news is if you don’t get your ACU card in time we will have the new for 2017 ACU single day registration facility available for just £3.  Good idea to arrive a bit earlier as it takes longer to take entries and deal with memberships etc on the first couple of trials. For 2017 you can join/rejoin the club at the same time as getting your ACU membership online on their website – they will pass your details and membership fee onto us.

Do you know about the threat to all off road motorsport?
You can read about it and do something about it here

Where are our Trials? Just about everything you need to know about a trial (including the results afterwards) can be found by clicking on that specific event including a map of the location. There’s a bit more info on the locations (and maybe even the nearest postcode) in ‘Locations’ which is revealed when you mouse over the ‘Info’ tab.

RESULTS:- we always try to get the results up on the relevant ‘Event‘ page on here and also on 
www.facebook.com/horsforthtrials as soon as they are available (usually on the night of the trial unless something prevents it) so remember to have a look there – or if you are on facebook, ‘like’ our page and the results will come to you!
We also like to support TrialsCentral so the events and results can usually be found on there too but there can be a delay whilst the results post is approved.
Quickest way for recent events is to click on the result line on the right here (or below if you are reading this on a phone) in Recent Events. For historical results just go the the relevant ‘Event’.

All our day time trials start at 11.

Just a reminder of our Club Trial changes (that go back to the start of 2016) here and the Flags to follow here

2017 Events in ‘Events’ tab, printer friendly list in ‘Info, Forms’.

2017 costs held; Membership £10 adults, £5 Under 16 (includes access to Swaine Woods).
Club Series trials, £15 adults, £10 under 16; Other trials might be dearer (usually Yorkshire Group Trials) as specified on the Regs.

Remember, if you ‘like’ our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/horsforthtrials) you’ll get a notification reminding you of our next trial in the week before and also when the results are posted.Update; seems that, coincident with now receiving lots of unsolicited (paid for!) notifications, no longer is everyone receiving all FB/Horsforth posts on their FB page. Can only suggest that more frequent ‘liking’ might help improve the latter problem; I guess we are stuck with the former.
If anyone can throw any light on this please let us know.
